About this fund
The London based PF Charitable Trust has worked with Foundation Scotland to distribute funds in Scotland since 1997, distributing over £900,000 in its name during this time. The PF Charitable Trust's funding policy is to support work at community level and the Foundation provides a valuable service in targeting appropriate groups.
